trip over the summer. romney, obama aides say, is no ronald reagan, more like chevy chase. combatting that image, romney met with a group of retired generals after a speech. the romney approach would be both more muscular and bipartisan. >> if you look at harry truman and john kennedy and the use of power by bill clinton in his second term, that is a much different approach than jimmy carter and barack obama. >> reporter: to put his vision into action, romney will have to win first, which explains why he made an impromptu stop at a nearby elementary school. at this stage of the race, the pictures matter almost as much as the policies. romney did mention the obama campaign's trump card on foreign policy, the killing of osama bin laden, but he seemed to give the credit to what he called, quote, military and intelligence professionals. romney will now shift back to the economy with campaign events coming up here in virginia and also in iowa and ohio. wolf? >> jim acosta, thank you. let's go back to gloria borger. what was mitt romney trying to accomplish with this marriage foreign policy

of your mouth the right way. >> oh, now you are ronald reagan. >> now you are jack kennedy. >> this is a bunch of stuff. look, here is the deal -- >> what does that mean a bunch of stuff? >> simply inaccurate. >> it is is irish. >> and as for the first debate -- >> it is fair to say i was too polite. >> not an issue with these guys. >> it then turned into a sparring and it was very, very personal. >> personal and partisan. >> you have to be kidding me. >> and in fact, the congressional hearing on the attack in benghazi was downright testy. >> it was a terrorist attack on an asset in libya and never exposed. >> i certainly hope that today's hearing is not going to be received for political purposes only 24 days from the election. >> yeah, about the election, thele pos have been good to romney this week, and the contradictions, that is another story. >> there is no legislation with regards to abortion that i'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda. >> wow. here is old moderate, mitt. where you been, boy? i missed you all of these three days. >> a day later he clar
